From the Back Cover

Solar Electricity Handbook - 2013 Edition
Solar electricity is a wonderful concept. Take free power from the sun and use it to power electrical equipment. No ongoing electricity bills, no reliance on an electricity socket. 'Free' electricity that does not harm the planet.
 
Generating electricity from sunlight alone is a powerful resource, with applications and benefits throughout the world. But how does it work? What is it suitable for? How much does it cost? How do I install it?
 
This best selling internet-linked book answers all these questions and shows you how to use the power of the sun to generate electricity yourself.
 
The website that accompanies this book includes online solar calculators and tools to simplify your solar electricity installation, to ensure that building your solar energy system is as straightforward and successful as possible.

This books goes into very good detail with explanations on what to expect when using a Solar PV Panel system. It provides tips and sketches on how to assemble and install these systems. Perfect reference to anyone wanting to learn about electricity generated by the Sun. I recommend this handbook to everyone interested in learning about this technical field.

Good clear helpful material for DIY person. Very helpful tables on the internet tie in well with the book. Also a link to see FAQ,s and actually ask questions and get answers. Also reassuring is that the author updates the info very regularly and often in new editions.

A friend told me that this book was the bible of solar at home technology. He is more versed in this matter but even for me the book is an easy read. It takes some time to decide which application that you may want for your home only because it breaks down the applications to the most understandable needs of the consumer. It is perfect to help a lay individual decide exactly what you will need for the application that you desire. I recommend the book.

Have wanted to learn about renewable energy and all the components and the correct way to install. So much information out there and no real instructions to go with it. The manufacturers just assume you already know how to install these items and calculate what you need. This book tells it all and is a must for someone wanting to do an install. You can do it completely yourself using this book no matter if you are handy with tools or not.
